'˜Celebration' is theme for care homes open day

Care homes in the area will be taking part in the Care Home Open Day this Friday, and residents are invited to go along and visit.

Stewton House Care Home: Linda Hammond (Manager), Jayne Wright (Activities Co-ordinator), Dawn Whitt (Area Manager) and Jill Bailey (Administrator).

This is the fourth year that the national event is taking place, and the theme for 
2016 is “celebration”.

One of the homes involved in the scheme is Stewton House Care Home, in Louth. General manager Linda Hammonds said: “The idea behind the day is to encourage local people to visit care homes in their community and to work together to 
develop better relationships.

“The important connection is something that Stewton has nurtured 
since opening, and the home is already acting as a community hub, including 
participating in Lovely Louth and welcoming school children into the 
home for visits.”

This year, Stewton House will be hosting their open day with a 1920s theme to 
mark the Queen’s 90th 
birthday year.

Ms Hammonds continued: “This is a great way to show the excellent services on offer and the 
fantastic work that goes on at Stewton House.

“Some people still have misconceptions about care homes, so we are keen to dispel any myths and for people to come and have a look round, meet the 
staff and residents.”
